Christmas Cards done the Minted Way

In case you haven’t heard the awesome news – Halloween is over and CHRISTMAS IS COMING!  Starbucks has pulled out the Red Cups (!), Costco is bring out bathing suits (OK, so not yet but I bet they will soon) and I’m starting to think about Christmas cards.

I love Christmas cards, I don’t always so much love the addressing and the mailing part but I love all they hold.  The photos, the sentiment, the reminder to stop and tell someone you love them, also the glitter, the colors and the cute little snowmen – it’s just a little bit of awesome mixed in with the mail.

My favourite Christmas cards are the ones with photos, the ones that are photos.  These photo cards & family photos we receive during the holidays fill a bulletin board in my kitchen that year round reminds me to be thankful for those people and to pray for them.

This year Minted is going to be helping us design our Christmas photo cards.  I’ve spent the last hour browsing through hundreds of beautiful, classic designs envisioning the perfect card to wish our family & friends a very Merry Christmas.

Minted 4I love how they think “outside the box” with these Holiday Minibooks.

Not sure where to start?  Check out their Inspiration Boards!  I love how I can browse through the great ideas, and beautiful collections to find ideas of my own.  Which, when you’re design challenged like I am is a very helpful feature.

Keep in mind that Christmas is less than 2 months away, which means you need to order your cards soon to allow time for them to arrive.  Minted’s estimated shipping times to Canada are 3-5 business days regular shipping and 1-2 days priority, which means if you order them today you’ll have them in hand with plenty of time to get them out to your family & friends before Christmas.

So, now it’s time for me to ask you for a little favor.  I have a few favourite designs and I just simply can’t choose the right one.  Take a look at the 3 designs below and let me know which one you like the best.

Personally I think I’m leaning towards Design #3.  I love how different and cute it is – not to mention how curious I am about what the girls would like to “say” in their little bubbles.

I am SO excited for all the festivities of the holidays to begin and ordering my Christmas cards feels like the perfect way to kick things off.

These are so pretty! There’s nothing better than being able to send a personalized card for Christmas. They make it look easy.

I love them all…especially #2! I’m a huge lover of Christmas cards with family photos. Great way to share with friends and family and have a personal feel. Plus, it’s so cool to see the kids growing up and changing each year!
